The SEGA and Pokemon developer Game Freak collaboration teased last week has been announced as Tembo The Badass Elephant.

Here’s the synopsis:

Shell City is plunged into a state of emergency after coming under attack from the devastating forces of PHANTOM, led by a mysterious masked commander. Terrifying war machines emblazoned with skulls tear through the city leaving a trail of destruction in their wake!

As the National Army struggles to contain PHANTOM, General Krenman sees the mammoth task at hand and calls upon the only thing that stands between Shell City’s obliteration and its salvation; the peanut chompin’, villain stompin’, PHANTOM romping Tembo The Badass Elephant.

Temo will be tasked with pushing his way through various forces using jump, smash, punch, swing and butt stomp attacks. He even has a avian sidekick named Picolo.

The game features 17 levels designed in comic book style art.

In development as a digital title for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, Tembo The Badass is a 2D side-scrolling action-adventure and will be released this summer.
